Falling into treasure guardian's ambush unintentionally is a beginner's mistake. Since Moonlit Black Cats are members of PC Research Club IRL, they should have at least have a little knowledge about traps and ambushes in RPG(unless it is their first time playing one). The Black Cats' leader seems to be only one who knew the basics of gaming otherwise they would have been annihilated long before they met Kirito. Well, I can't blame people for making mistakes, but only in this game, you pay for your mistake with your life.

My verdict for this episode: The story is still great but a little bit predictable.


Maybe in a few offline RPGs this is true, but in a vast majority of MMOs, there are very very few, if any, non-quest scripted traps like that. In all likelihood they probably legitimately were not expecting that to happen(because it doesn't).

Even in most other offline RPGs, it's usually just a single mimic chest that jumps at you and most certainly not a room full of two dozen enemies.

lol ......dont understand ...people say they are anxious about next episodes and bla bla bla ...and then they dont understand the concept of time skip ...not that i too fully understood but the basics ..whenever there was time skip ...the dates and floor level were shown at the top ..when first kirito came to that guild i believe he was at the same lvl like 40 or 48.... but he hid it and made it to 20,,and im bit of a mmorpg player too and it doesnt take much time to lvl up to like 50 coz the lvl cap will probably be like 100 or something,, saying that i think the mob were probably according to the floors lvl except for bosses i think ...and he used it night time to solo that should pretty make up for that..and for the lvl 70 later in Christmas ....i believe it has probably been 6 months since that incident happen so lvl 70 is not that big of a problem and i believe that Santa Claus was probably lvl 48 boss

Episode 3

I dont really play online RPG's but I play enough to know
when I level up there are more stronger enemies and I level up faster when I don't die and use up all my lives.But in this world when you die , you die. So maybe there is a lot of fear in the hearts of the players that remained alive and so their progress is slower. There are strong Japanese traits here , not showing strong emotions of fear . They hide it very well which makes it abit confusing at times.

I dont mind the pacing of this anime. BUt it appears the timeline of the events are very long indeed and so I
wonder how their physical body are holding up since we have no window of insight of what is going on in the real world.

But aside from that , they are trying to develop Kirito's character and I am feeling a lot of heart and soul in the characters now and I actually like that and I feel they want the audience to feel the pain and sufferring the protagonist is going through.

I know there are more characters to appear.
Cant wait for the next

There's a lot to speculate on based on the fact that they stop showing anything about events in the real world shortly into the anime.

It's entirely possible that all of this is actually taking place within the span of a few hours or days, because all of the processes involved take place directly within your mind - in the same way that dreams are entirely disconnected from the progress of time in real life. Surely someone capable of creating a game that influenced brainwaves to this extent can change the perceived passage of time for the player.

Imagine a game that to can play that you can spend years in and only lose a few hours in a night? That's the holy grail of gaming.

SAO doesn't need Mr. T advertising for it.

Because WOW is completely about you getting stuck inside the game and you totally dying if you die in the game.



Eh, I'm not feeling any love for this series now because of the last two episodes. While they are giving details about Kirito and his experiences, I'm not really interested in what or how the episodes revealed it. It seemed a bit rushed, too. Well, I can't complain about the eyecandy I got from this episode. Sachi's pretty good looking; her design reminds me of Yukiho (I think that's who I'm referring to) from Idolm@ster.

SAO has the same time as the real world,

morning = morning
night = night

it's like they're actually living in the game,

Also, since we saw guild-to-guild combat before Kirito fought the Xmas boss, perhaps the series will touch on player-killing. *shivers* A nasty thought, but SAO's shown it's not afraid to be really dark at times. Really unique for a shounen demographic show [I assume?] to waste no time being a tad depressing. XD



thats actually a guild duel, 6 vs. many is already not balanced and the that dragon guild is a clearing guild to put it simply a very strong guild,

in the novel it should be Klien and some commander of the dragon guild are in Duel,

you'll see a actual PK Guild in later episode, and see how they bypass the security xD

i cant give anymore thats all for this EP i think,

i dont want to give spoilers for those who dont read the LN, its not exciting
